# A* prediction for A2 Mathematics Watch

Announcements
1. I was wondering, how do teacher make A* predictions of A2 maths?
I was told you had to get 90+ UMS average in AS. Is that true?
2. Not for me,

it's 80% avg at AS then 90% on C3 and C4.

3. They usually take into consideration how well you did in C1 and C2 when making the prediction.

For instance, I did really well in them and got predicted an A* in Maths because they showed I understood Core well. I'd assume that's the same for most schools if they're making a prediction of A* in Maths A Level.

The conditions you have to satisfy to achieve an A* in Maths is getting 480/600 (80% overall) with 180 UMS being made up by C3 and C4.
4. Depends on your school. Normally if you are on the boundary of a 90% average eg 88%, they are likely to predict you an A*

The reality is that there are no rules

Your school may have guidelines but most schools just accept individual teacher predictions
